Watercoloured Birthday Rose


Today I am sharing a card that I made at the HLS Craft Retreat last month. One of the best things about meeting up with everyone is you get to raid everyone's stash! I couldn't resist watercolouring a set owned by Anita.

I coloured the flower with orange and red zigs and the leaves with green. A little spritz of colour for the background was all that was needed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Thank you for popping in. See you soon! xx


  1. Gorgeous oranges, and beautifully splattered backdrop!

  2. Wow, Kylie, what a stunning card! The colours are so vibrant and compliment each other so beautifully. Love the rose! You've really done justice to the image with your watercolouring. I'm glad you added just a spritz of colour to the background. Any more would have taken away from the image. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. Beautiful colours and tones on that gorgeous flower Kylie. Love the bit of spritzing.

  4. WOW Kylie! Love your gorgeous watercoloured rose, looks stunning!

  5. Wow, Kylie! The colours are amazing! I need to get my Zigs out again! Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

  6. Yay! So glad you linked this up, you know I love it. The colours look gorgeous, and the rose really pops against the splatters. If I track down another of that stamp set I'll grab it for you chickie!
    Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x

  7. Wow Kylie your orange coloured rose is so beautiful. Love how you've lined it up on the left face of the card on the layered panel. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful birthday card with the Watercooler Wednesday "Feminine" challenge this week. Love it!

  8. Absolutely GORGEOUS card, Kylie! Beautiful take on Anita's card and your watercoloring with Zigs is stunning! I think I need more practice :)
